About deathchest.drops: does "allows overflow items to drop on ground" happens when i use sneak-punch?
In reply to Markos_Silva:
A new version (1.13.0-beta1) has been uploaded. Support for Factions and PreciousStones has been disabled until 1.13 compatible versions of these plugins are released. All configuration files, language files, and the database schema have changed. If you are upgrading from a previous version, it is recommended that you rename or delete the plugin folder and allow all new files to be installed.

I was kinda curious if this plugin could get an addition, lets say, you die, all your stuff goes in chest, you spawn at your bed and all of a sudden the /back command did not work. Hold on, when I died, I got a key to my chest, and when I'm holding it in my hand, some arrow-like item shows up in screen, telling me the direction where to go to the deathchest....
Something like this.....
please please please PLEASE update this plugin. i used it for nearly 5 years on my multiworld server and only just since 1.13 did it stop working. Players LOVE this feature.
Is there a way to lock the chest for individual ranks?
Hi, i am very happy with the fact that dying ingame does give you the chance to save your stuff.... Would it be also possible to either give the coordinates where the chest is or a warp action to it?
That would make a lot of users happy, for sure...
Keep up the good work...
Can you add a placeholder for the position of death?
Translated by google translator
Hei Tim. Can u add position placeholder for Language files? Thank u ^^'
Is there an 1.11 Bucket Version ?
There is, just installed it on my server.
Back from a brief hiatus, I will try to address the issues that have cropped up with newer versions of bukkit in a new release.
hello i got some errrors i use SavageDeathChest v1.7.0-beta2 and latest spigot 1.11 what is this errors? http://pastebin.com/a2ue6XY8
This issue has been fixed in the upcoming release. In the meantime, disabling the killer looting feature should prevent this error, I believe.
Hey on 1.7.0 beta2 I'm getting empty chests on death with a blank sign, am I doing something wrong?
Hmm. Are you also using Towny, as the poster I responded to below was? If not, send me some more info about the circumstances so I can look into it. A log or stack trace would help a bunch.
And now this error when another player didn't get a chest placed. http://prntscr.com/cvnrbj
The warning in the log is due to a missing message in the language file; I will make sure the message gets included in the next version. However, the chest-denied-block message should only get sent to a player if there was no open space to place a chest within the search distance. This should be a rare occurrence, as there should usually be at least one open block at the player's death location, unless they died by teleporting into solid stone or something like that.
I'd be curious to know the circumstances in which this occurred, in case there is a further bug that needs to be tracked down. Otherwise, this is intended behavior, in that a chest will not be placed where there is no open space or replaceable blocks within the search distance. The log warning was merely indicating that the message to be sent for this circumstance could not be found.
The list of replaceable blocks in the config file are block types that the chests may be substituted for; by default it includes water and lava, so chests will be placed for players who die when submerged. The only other instance I can think of is a very large cave-in, where the player is buried deep enough that an open space does not exist within the configured search distance. This could be remedied by adding sand/gravel to the replaceable blocks list, and/or increasing the search distance.
